The Carrabelle Bottle House
in Carrabelle
7 days a week, from 8am - 5pm

He just woke up one day and told his wife, “I want to build a Bottle House.”

Leon Wiesner, a former art professor, had moved to the sleepy town of Carrabelle in the year 2000.  While historically bottle houses have been built out of necessity in places with a surplus of people and a lack of wood, Leon had other reasons. He wanted to create a visual “something-or-other”, and it turned out to be a house!

In early February 2012,  Leon started building a 5 sided bottle house.  Made entirely of glass bottles of all sizes and colors, this house was finished in December 2012 and became a beautiful example of alternative building materials and artistic whimsy.

The house was constructed of over 6,000 bottles, 150 bags of mortar, and other pieces of glass. It was located in a position to catch early morning light from the east and afternoon light from the west.

The house was such a success that Leon has already begun a new structure, and you are welcome to watch the construction process as it unfolds.  This structure is going to be a 12 foot tall light house made entirely from beer bottles and hand made glass. It will feature two sets of revolving lights that show off the tower, and revolving lights on top.

Although the structures sit on private land, they can be seen from the road and are open to the public.  Leon and his wife live in the house made of bottles year round, and you are always invited to come in for a tour!
